From Bing to Bieber, Listen to the 10 Strangest Holiday Duets of All Time

Originally posted 12/04/2013 12:00AM

As any Hallmark card can tell you, the holidays are about bringing people together. For some of us, that means reuniting with grown-up children, or welcoming long-lost cousins into our homes. But for musicians, it means something else: seasonal duets, often performed with the oddest of partners.

From reality-show novelty songs to stocking-stuffer EPs, Christmas isn't Christmas until two people who have no business being in the same room have crowded in front of the mic to sing a holiday classic.

Remembering John Lennon: New App Reveals Rare Photos

Originally posted 12/05/2013 02:00PM

In June of 1980, John Lennon took a summer vacation. He sailed from Newport, R.I., aboard a 43-foot sloop with a crew of four to Bermuda, where he rented a house and flew his son Sean, then 4, down to join him.

Ordinarily, that wouldn't be such a loaded statement, but given what happened December 8, 1980, Lennon's trip to Bermuda has gained a kind of misty-eyed significance.

Yoko Ono Advises Heather Mills: 'Try to Survive'

Originally posted 04/04/2008 09:15AM

Though Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono have long been said to have a frosty relationship, John Lennon's widow has some warm words for McCartney's recent ex, Heather Mills.

"All I can say is, it's not very easy for a woman to be associated with The Beatles," Ono, 75, tells Britain's Sky News. "I think all the wives did suffer, and I think quietly suffer. Suffer but endured, I would actually say."

Moving forward, Ono advises Mills, 40, to "do her very best and try to survive".
